morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in the debates this year. he kept his cool, his composure, he kept that sort of smile on his face and remained at least visibly unrattled by whatever happened, and when he had to do it and go on the attack he did it and we all remember the debate i guess it was in florida with newt gingrich where he basically took gingrich's pants off on the issue of what was in his investment portfolio and won that state by a big margin. this is obviously tk- different. it's a national audience, not a republican audience, he has to win people over. it's a different kind of challenge over a sitting president who is pretty smooth performer. what john roberts said is right, debates sometimes make a d

, chris. >> good morning, guys. when president obama and mitt romney go head to head inside the arena two days from now, it could be the moment that defines this election. this event is so big, it will shut down six miles of i-25 for six hours right in the middle of rush hour, likely causing denver's version of karma gedden. look here. you can see preparations are ongoing inside. basically this arena, which has 7,000 seats, will be transformed into a giant television set with some 200 people in the crowd. that being said, this debate is not open to the public. it's invitation only. only a handful of tickets were given to the university and each campaign. in a few hours, students will have a chance at tickets through lottery. of course, with 11,000 students, chances are slim. this is the first time colorado and the university of denver will host a presidential debate. school officials tell thus is a single most important event they've ever had here. if you go on craigslist, you'll find people offering hundreds of dollars for a seat inside. but officials say that's not going to happen. secu
'll hear from a top obama adviser, david plouffe, in a moment. but first, joining me now, the republican governor of new jersey chris christie. welcome back to "meet the press." >> happy to be back, david. good morning. >> the key battleground states, nine of them, we've been polling in nine of them, and all nine it's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of
probably go through this. this is sort of the obama folks are going to console themselves this morning. this is the first presidential debate featuring an incumbent president where the challenger won. you go to reagan. you go to bush in '92. not clinton in '96. go to kerry in '04 and go to today. you got to say, is there something to it? where the incumbent sits there? annoyed he's on equal footing. out of practice, number two. and number three, sort of shackled in by how he knows the job is. not how he wishes the job was or what he was hoping it would be when he was a candidate. throw that all aside. mitt romney didn't just didn't just get himself a second look. the second most important thing that came out of the debate is it gave the republican party and it gave candidates down the ballot hope. something to believe in. and there was a lot of fear, a lot of fear from a a bunch of republicans here in denver saying i'm so relieved. i feared obama would win the debate and there would be a collapse of the republican ticket. >> there has to be something to it in the coming days. i look fo
. here she is, my bff, jacki schechner. >> higher standards, people. good morning everyone. if you're a big, fat political geek like i am or interested in this particular election, it should be an interesting week ahead. president obama is in henderson nevada where he's practicing for the next couple of days. both the president and mitt romney's camps are trying to lower expectations so that if someone does particularly well, it will be an apparent surprise. we heard over the weekend that mitt romney is working on some hard-hitting one-liners because he has that well-timed sense of humor thing. here's the president in response to that news. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. governor romney is a good debater. >> not so sure if he's a good zinger. the presidential last debate was back in 2008. he and mitt romney have never gone head to head. romney does need a win to make this a game changer. the match-up will be wednesday night in denver and of course,
by the way. this morning american cross roads is out with a tough new internet video. take a look. >> what did president obama do the same day of a terror attack on american citizens? he campaigned in las vegas. then at the annual u.n. meeting where rogue nations are calling for a new world order, obama snubbed key allies and skipped meetings with world leaders so he could be on tv. >> so how much of the campaign is this going to be? the romney campaign is debating how forcefully to engage the libya issue. some are advising it's good to use as a stand-in for overall failures of the president. romney tries to do that in a wall street op-ed writing disturbing developments are sweeping across the greater middle east, these developments are not, as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk. yet amid this upheaval, our country seems to be at the mercy. >> the response was slow, it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one t
pressure on the republican members of congress who seem only focused on one job, barack obama's. >> all right. debbi wasserman shultz, chairwoman of the democratic national committee. thanks for being on this morning. >> thanks, chuck. >>> the monthly auto sales numbers come out today. since the markets are just opening, let's get right to the market rundown. becky quick is here. if you're in the stock world and you live on the mountain or western time zone, you have to set an early alarm clock. >> you're not kidding. forget about the people who watch for the pacific time. these are people who are vampires. they don't come out in the light of day. they are there all the time. and this morning, it looks like the market is going to open a little higher. the dow and s&p were up for the first day of the quarter and for the month of october yesterday. we're seeing gains continue. part of that is what we're hearing out of europe. there are stories that spain may come and ask for a bailout sooner rather than later. that sounds more crazy, because they think the government needs help and the so
this morning, just two days before the candidates square off in their first debate. first the national picture. according to "the washington post"/abc news poll, 49% say they would vote for obama and 47% for romney. those numbers are unmoved from early last month. >> so nationally we're in the margin of error in this poll. >> all right. in the critical swing states, the president's lead grows to 11 points among likely voters. 52% to 41%. in ohio, a state where early in-person voting begins tomorrow -- >> wow! >> -- a new "columbus dispatch" poll shows the president leading 51%-42%. in august that same poll had the two candidates tied at 45%. >> at 45%. if you want to know how badly things have gone over the past month for mitt romney, how bad september was for mitt romney, just look at the "the columbus dispatch" poll. he's lost nine points in ohio. it's absolutely critical that he does change the narrative, he does turn things around. you know, we always talk about -- i've always talked about 1980, the final weekend, it's tied between reagan and carter. this isn't 1980 anymore. he's got to ki

,000', and the obama campaign saying it is because mitt romney wasn't honest. they are having a tough time trying to spin out of this. >>guest: they are. another thing that we heard david axelrod say this morning is that the president didn't want to have two candidates on stage insulting each other. that was part of the reasoning for why he didn't bring up bain capital or romney's tax returns or the 47 percent video. >>trace: "politico" had a quote that said there was no knockout punch but a thousand cuts that made obama plead. the question everyone is asking, how much did he bleed. how much did it cost? >>guest: it is hard to say because it will take a long-term, not a long-term, up to a week to she in the presidents. we don't know yet what it will look like in the battleground states. the obama campaign is moving very quickly to make that trust argument against mitt romney through some of their surrogates in states like ohio and virginia and others. they don't want this to take off for mitt romney. >>trace: it could take a few days or a week to find out how it polls. i will give you exams of ho
. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was reasonable, as somebody who criticized the president while being respectful of the president. and as somebody those independent voters, those undecided voters, those persuadable voters could take a look at and say, you know, i could see him as a plausible president. just by being there mitt romney was elevated to the level of the president. and he effectively i would have to say took charge of the debate. and the president just sort of did not really push him or force him or challenge him the way we just saw on the stump right now. >> i was pretty surprised by that myself. >> yeah. >> so what's the major lessons the president should be learning from his performance last night? >> well, i think the lesson is that you've got to pay attention to wha
